here is a sweetly simple vintage slip
made from white mercerized cotton
with a lovely luster

it has that classic New Look shape
with a fitted bodice, princess seams, and a nicely full flared skirt
the fabric is smooth & structured -- stiff isn't the right word since the fabric has a nice feel, and although not quite as full as a puffy crinoline, it will add body and oomph to your full skirt dresses ~

the bodice and skirt hem are trimmed in dainty crochet lace
the shoulder straps are adjustable and the slip fastens on the side with a covered metal zipper

m e a s u r e s

chest: 36" / 92cm (fabric has a little bit of stretch, about 1/2" to 1")
waist: 30" / 76cm
hips: 46" / 117cm
bodice length: 11.5" / 29cm, not including the straps and measured from the top point of bodice where the straps are attached down to the waist seam
skirt length: 28.5" / 72cm

excellent, perfect condition except for two tiny spots near the left hip, shown in the last picture. I am certain this has never been worn. Until I steamed it, it still had the factory folds, and it came from the massive estate sale of a woman who went to a lot of sample sales in the 40s & 50s. For whatever reason, she didn't use most of what she bought -- her great-niece told me she always wore the same house dress, and yet her rooms were overflowing with beautiful clothing. Many of the items I bought still had their original tags, or per the store's instruction, the labels were cut out. This slip dress does have the remnants of a label stitched inside. I also have a similar slip in pink...you can see that here:

and I have another slip just like this white one but a little bit smaller, so if you need one with a 28" waist, please let me know ♥
